Impact of COVID-19 on current atomic force microscopy market size and forecast

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, a deadly respiratory disease that originated in China, is now become a worldwide issue and has also affected the atomic force microscopy market. Several industry experts are of the opinion that the COVID-19 pandemic would start to subside by FY2021. Considering the inputs from various industry experts belonging to the various stages of the value chain, such as OEMs, suppliers, end users, and distributors, and the financial release of various companies in the AFM ecosystem, it has been estimated that the market will experience a marginal growth during the forecast period. For instance, Park Systems (South Korea) experienced a growth of more than 20% in 2020 compared to 2019. Whereas other companies such as Oxford Instruments (UK) and Horiba (Japan) experienced a nominal growth of about 2% only. It is expected that the growth rate will recover from 2021 onwards, and thereafter, the market is expected to remain in the growth stage.

Atomic Force Microscopy Market Dynamics

Driver : Committed support from several governments to promote nanotechnology and nanoscience research and development

Over the past 3 decades, atomic force microscopy has been a powerful nanotechnological imaging tool that provides different modes for analyzing nanomaterial properties, such as the topography, elasticity, adhesion, friction, electrical properties, and magnetism, of the materials. Owing to this, several governments across the world have increased their funding to carry out research activities pertaining to nanotechnology. Nanotechnology can be beneficial for diverse areas that include drug development, water decontamination, information and communication infrastructures, and the production of stronger, lighter, durable, and perfect nanomaterials. Hence, various governments across the world promote nanotechnology research funding. For instance, in April 2017, the German government granted funds worth approximately USD 17 million (EUR 15.6 million) for the establishment of the electron cryo-microscopy facility in the Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB).

Restraint : Damage to samples due to contact-mode AFM

In the contact mode, the tip follows a trajectory corresponding to a persistent and repulsive tip-sample force, using a feedback loop. There are 2 types of contact-mode measurements: the constant force mode and the constant height mode. In the constant force mode, the sample or the tip uses a feedback loop to move up and down and keep its deflection constant. The value of z movement (z is height) is determined by the height changes in the surface of the sample. As a result, information about the surface topography can be achieved. As the tip is in uninterrupted contact with the surface, this mode is intensely influenced by frictional and adhesive forces, which can destroy or sweep soft samples, such as polymers or biological macromolecules on the surface. The lateral force exerted can be quite high; it may damage samples, and artifacts may be observed. This can result in distortion of image data or the movement of relatively loosely attached objects. This approach is mostly used for probing surfaces of solid pharmaceutical formulations. When small forces are used, this mode can also be employed for surface topography imaging of fixed cells.

Opportunity : Growing investments in OLED production and expansion

Growing adoption of high-end smartphones with large displays has increased the demand for OLED panels worldwide. OLED panels are widely used in smartphones owing to their image clarity, lightweight, and high contrast ratio. Samsung Display (South Korea) is a leading manufacturer of small and medium-sized AMOLED displays for smartphones. It has invested around 4 trillion won (USD 3.6 billion) in the OLED market from 2015 to 2017. Also, other companies such as HTC Corporation (Taiwan), Nokia Oyj (Finland), Motorola, Inc. (U.S.) and Telefτnica Brasil (Vivo), headquartered in Brazil, started manufacturing their flagship mobile models equipped with OLED displays. Many industrial researchers and manufacturers choose AFM for reviewing aspects of structural geometry such as feature height, pitch, critical dimension, angle, and even sidewalls together with roughness analysis of OLED displays. This is due to accurate measurement results, low system noise, high-throughput rate, and minimized tip-to-tip variation achieved using AFM imaging technology. All these factors are expected to boost the market for AFM in the coming years.

Challenge : Lack of skilled professionals for handling atomic force microscopy tools

Physicists and laboratory technicians can easily operate standard compound microscopes. However, with the development of advanced microscopes, skilled personnel are required. According to a survey conducted by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), 35% of participating economists reported that there is a shortage of skilled professionals in the US. Microscopes are used in various interdisciplinary fields, such as biophysics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, and biochemistry. Atomic force microscopes are widely used in nanotechnology. Physicists or technicians who handle these devices should have thorough interdisciplinary knowledge in the field of surface physics and surface analyses to study the characterization of biological and chemical compounds. The complexity of the instrumentation tool may have a significant impact on their adoption. Thus, it restrains the market growth.
